Meanwhile in Dripping Springs, Texas, a few Whole Athletes were contesting the first stop of the ProXCT national series, landing both Lucas Newcomb and Shane Skelton on the Junior Men's podium in 2nd and 3rd, after Zach Valdez earned an impressive 8th place and the top U23 rider in the UCI Pro men's race.

Lucas Newcomb and Shane Skelton had their hands full with the on-form Mexican National Champion Jose Ulloa in the Junior Cat 1 race. Despite both suffering crashes on the loose, technical course, Newcomb and Skelton fought back to contest the podium.
